Ninja Sprint

Ninja Sprint is a new game by Eastasiasoft, and promises to bring a lot of fun and action in the form of a simple but effective run as fast as you can to the finish line by jumping and sliding your way through a course made up of numerous obstacles, all the while killing bad guys and collecting coins.

In Ninja Sprint you play Neko the Stray Cat who was struck by lightning and obtained human form and supernatural ninja powers. In order to survive unemployment, Neko has to do what all good feline-mutated cats can do and slaughter ancient monsters and steal all their coins.

It’s a great story, but a concept that has been done a million times. Thankfully Ninja Sprint has the presentation and gameplay qualities that make it stand out from the norm and become decent game that will have you playing in short spells and passing the time of day when you have nothing more to do.

Gameplay

The game has you running from point A (the start) to point B (the finish) and along the way you have only got to press one of three buttons. Your main buttons are the jump button which allows Neko to jump from platform to platform, and the slide button which allows Neko to slide through narrow passages and collect objects otherwise inaccessible.

The other button you have to press is the attack button which produces the special move. This will take out all the enemies on screen, and can be thought of as a way of gaining bonus points by killing everything on screen for multiplying points.

The game consists of 80 levels in four scenarios; these are Mountain, Town, Castle and Heaven. Each of these scenarios present you with the same basic gameplay of jumping platforms and sliding through gaps, and only the backdrops and graphics change.

As your character is constantly on the move, the harder levels can be a matter of trial and error. Sometimes you will jump where you should have slid, and vice-versa. The entire gameplay is revolved around learning the correct path and collecting all three giant coins.

Points are accumulated by killing monsters, collecting coins and making it to the end in one piece. Your coin collection allows you to unlock new features of the game, including different blood effects (such as different colour blood and even flower blood!). All the features of the game can be unlocked quickly, but it’s the basic gameplay that keeps you coming back for more.

Graphics

The game looks gorgeous on a Samsung S3. There’s no other word to describe it. The backdrops are detailed and colourful, the enemies are designed well and Neko is animated and drawn very well.

The graphics are colourful and slick, and the scrolling landscape is silky smooth. The minor downside to such gorgeous and detailed graphics is that when there is a lot on screen at once, you can get distracted and before you know it you will be jumping into an obstacle or running off the screen and falling down a hole which kills you instantly.

Sound

The game has a blisteringly fast adrenaline-pumping soundtrack composed by Rafael Dyll. It fits the gameplay perfectly, and gets your heart pounding along to the action on the screen.

Just like the graphics, the creators have taken time on the sound, and the entire audio and visual experience is quite breath-taking. Graphics, audio and gameplay all fit seamlessly creating a brilliant experience.

Overall

Ninja Sprint is a game that you can pick up and play for a few minutes at a time. It doesn’t pretend to be anything different, and because of this it works well. The whole package is well presented and the options and controls are intuitive.

This is a game that will appeal to all ages after a quick fix. It’s simple to pick up and hard to put down. Ninja Sprint is cool, and should be on your phone as soon as you’ve read this review!
